Welcome to the agenda for our first ever IATI ‘Virtual Community Exchange’ (VCE), one of two online events taking place in 2021 to bring together the global IATI community. Join IATI’s first VCE on 13 April 2021 to help us consider IATI’s progress vis-à-vis the current state of transparency and open data in the era of the Sustainable Development Goals and COVID-19. During the VCE, you will hear about recent and upcoming IATI activities and how you can participate, be inspired during sessions led by other members of the IATI community and engage with peers in the open data and transparency space. Anyone with an interest in open data, transparency or development cooperation is welcome to join! 

The VCE will offer two to three parallel sessions simultaneously, and participants are welcome to attend a session from each time slot, or to ’pick and choose’, only attending sessions that fit their needs. Find out how to get prepared with this one-pager, ‘Getting Ready for the VCE’, or view the comprehensive logistical note for the event.

Questions? Drop us a line at info@iatistandard.org or post in our digital community platform, IATI Connect. We look forward to seeing you virtually on 13 April!

Feedback form is now closed.

Co-organised by AfDB, IOM, Nepal and Nigeria, this session will support cross-fertilisation between the IATI Data Quality and Data Use Communities of Practice, facilitating a frank discussion between data publishers and data users around linkages between data quality and blockages to data use, and possible solutions. The session will seek to build a foundation for understanding and future discussion of how the quality of IATI data can impact the ability of the end users to use the data for their desired purposes. It will also seek to open a discussion about how the Community of Practices can be used to help find solutions to persistent data quality and data use issues.
